The MSc in Information Systems programme (MSIS) is a collaboration between the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (WKWSCI) and the School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE).
The programme blends theory and practice and aims to equip students with advanced knowledge necessary for the design, development, maintenance, and management of information systems. Such training includes exposure to the latest technologies used in the development of information systems, as well as core skills required to cope with the rapidly changing nature of the field.
The MSIS programme may be taken as full-time or part-time study. The full-time programme can be completed within one year while the part-time programme can be completed within two years. Courses are conducted through lectures, tutorials and laboratory sessions during a two-semester year – from August to November and January to April.
